    My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family, Barbara. I am so very sorry to hear about Buddy. There are no words that can express the need for comfort and strength at this time. Just know that the arms of our heavenly Father are always always around you, letting you know – you never walk alone. Just know I am thinking of you and praying for you these next months.

    I was most saddened to learn, recently, of Buddy Joe’s passing. My deepest sympathy to his family.

    My parents and I lived directly across Green Street from Buddy Joe and his family for most of my childhood. They were wonderful friends, good neighbors and kind and caring people. I shall alway remember Buddy’s many kindnesses to me and my family over the years.

    Again, my deepest sympathy to his family.
